I am 18 and going to community college to save money so i can go to the college i worked so hard to get into. Also i have ridden dirt bikes my whole life, and pay for my car insurance, gas, and anything else i need. But i still live at home and my parents wont let me get a street bike. It would help me save money on gas, and also be a lot of fun to drive. How can i get them to see that im not going to die as soon as i get on the bike?
Ok so now they told me that they aren’t worried about me crashing it, only about other people not seeing me on it and them hitting me. So im pretty much screwed because i cant control other people’s driving habits.

5 Thoughts on How can i get my parents to let me buy a street bike?

    Buy one and park it at a friend’s house. If they are that strict I would not rock the boat too much and get kicked out.

    If you are paying then you get what you want now, you’re supposed to be an adult but if they are paying then it is there choice

    As long as you live with mom and dad, and they are paying for you to live and/or go to school, they get to pull the puppet strings. They get to control what you do. If you get a bike, would you expect them to pay for it or for insurance or maintenance?

    Once you move out and can support yourself, you can do anything you want. Then they can’t control you anymore.

    A week ago i got my parents to believe that im not gonna die if i get a bike…in my case i convinced they by saying i can take care of myself…and a few examples of ppl who u know, who ride a bike and are perfectly fine..also include examples like even when you are walking on the pavement someone can run over you and u can end up…..also just remind them about how responsible you are by reminding about good things in the past.. anyway good luck..because you will need it..

    Listen to your parents,wait until you are on your own,take the course and then and only then buy a small bike for the street and move up as your skill level goes up.
